[Avid-L2] Project won't launch from desktop?

 

My clean install disk for SNDX 6.0.1.1 works fine so far.  I then switched to my clean install  disk and installed SNDX 5.5.3.  It works but if I drag a file to the desktop like I did with the 6.0.1.1 disk I can't open the project from the desktop.  I get an error:

Exception: DISK_DIR_NOT_FOUND,filename:???

Funny if I take the project on the desktop and put it into a new untitled folder I can open that.  WTF?  I have repaired permissions curious but no change.  It opens the project fine when it is in a folder on the desktop.  This didn't happen on the 6.0.1.1 system and this drive is a carbon copy clone of that drive before any Avid was installed.  Curious if others have seen this one.

Re: [Avid-L2] Nitris DX FPGA reprogram Power Cycle?

 

Never done that. I've always just shut down the CPU, waited for 15 secs, then launched the CPU. The NDX just followed.

How bout one of those nifty ethernet programmable power strips you saw at NAB? All just keep unplugging for now the stretching might do me some good.

[Avid-L2] Nitris DX FPGA reprogram Power Cycle?

 

While setting up various startup disks for SNDX 6.0.1.1 and 5.5.3 I see that the NitrisDX gets reprogrammed when switching which requires a power cycle at the end.  I shut down the computer and once it's off I can't seem to find a way to power down the NitrisDX with the front panel button.  I have opted to just unplug it to be sure it's power cycled.  Do I need to unplug the NitriDX after each reprogramming or is it enough to just shut down the computer?  IIRC I can hit the NitrisDX front panel button to have it go from yellow to green and reboot but is there a way to shut it off.  Maybe not sense that messes with the PCI buss etc...  What are those that have to bounce back and forth doing for the power cycle.

Nicely played Ford!! Might I suggest you google Manzanita Brewing Company so that you might run a double blind test of your theory?

[Avid-L2] Re: The civility of the AlvidL (Was: Effect ordering question)

 

Okay I just have to say this…

One of the first things I noticed when I switched over to FCP a few years back was the difference in tone between the AvidL and numerous FCP lists and forums. I have been a member of the AvidL (although lately mostly a lurker) since the mid to late 90's. When I switched to FCP a few years ago I looked for resource on the interwebs for FCP and was a bit shocked by the tone of the posters. If anything negative was mentioned about FCP there seemed to always be a certain level of flaming in those places towards anyone who would have to audacity to mention FCP in a negative light. On the contrary I just posted something negative about Avid and it sparked an informative and CIVIL conversation wherein I learned a few things. Good on ya AvidL, for being professionals and having a wonderful and informative conversation on the subject at hand.

I have truly missed all of you!

Re: [Avid-L2] Effect ordering question

 

Yep, that's exactly what happens when trying to expand the nest in the timeline. You have to "Step in" to have the ability to adjust the CC. Hence causing the issue of having to no real time feedback of the color correction in the composite.
